Pressed the order button!

After much deliberating I've ordered a standard 330d M Sport, choosing it over the 320d M Sport with some modest options or 330d lux.

I managed to squeeze on the advance loudspeaker system (company car allowance maxed out). Was originally thinking alpine white with red leather, but in the end went for estoril blue with black leather.

Now for the wait....

:-)

Good choice on colour and engine! Wise choice definitely on both, I would have done exactly the same. I have the Estoril Blue, you can't get bored off it and the M Sport looks the best out of all.

I saw an e46 52 plate saloon today in estoril blue and it was as new, beautiful

I've also ordered the 330d M Sport in Estoril, but with Coral Red leather, superman style!

Definitely think we've made the best choice!

Thanks guys.

My logic was get the best engine and gear box. The rest is a bonus. Odd ways that the company scheme works.... Could drop to a 320 but could only add HK....

Love the white / red combo, but currently in a white BM, so a change seemed right.

Congrats, you'll love it!

My 330 is in superman, EB is a stunning colour!

My car scheme was the same, loads of 320's and 330's of similar spec, the straight 6 was a no brainer! Lol

I wanted to order Coral red with my Estoril Blue 335d, but wife told me it would not look right. Gutted now!

That's what i thought at first, but Estoril is my favourite exterior colour and have wanted it since the E36 m3 came out with it, and Red leather is my favourite of the 3 no cost leathers.

I think it's a different and interesting look together that makes a change from the vast sea of silver, white, grey and black premium cars on the road (all with dark interiors)

There is bound to be the odd person that thinks i'm a flash twat in a loud colour scheme BMW, but i think f#%k them!

Is the loudspeaker system the only option?

Included in the company scheme was pro media. I also picked internet access as that's all I could fit on. Shame there is no scope to add more personal cash to the deal. I figure that if the hifi is pants, I have an aftermarket route. Not perfect, but I felt given the choice I was right to pick 330d over 320d+HK...

Also looked at opting out to comp scheme, but the numbers just don't stack up.

Time will tell .....
